The stars on the shoulders returned to the Dallas Cowboys jerseys on Thanksgiving in 1994, and boy did the team look sharp. The year marked the 75th year of NFL football and the 35th anniversary of the Cowboys coming into the league.
It was also the year that the star-studded team from Dallas won first place in the NFC East, going 12-4 in the regular season. The Cowboys lost in the NFC title game 38-28 against familiar rival San Francisco.
The '94 season did not end with the 'Boys hoisting a Super Bowl title, but the team had a successful year and looked great doing so.
While some might call the uniforms busy, the stars on the shoulders with the blue and white jersey were a great tribute to the team's early days. The jersey was an updated take on the original from 1960 and no doubt excited the fans.
Dallas is known for its symbolic white jerseys, but every fan wants some variety in jersey selection. No doubt younger fans added this throwback uniform to their Christmas list after the Thanksgiving debut.
Still one of the best jerseys the Cowboys have ever donned, the team store likely enjoyed plenty of sales after debuting these during the '94 season.
